UNCASVILLE, Conn. — Joseph Lopez led a balanced attack with 11 points, four in overtime, and Sacred Heart edged Maine 69-68 on Sunday in a consolation game of the Hall of Fame Tip-Off.

Sean Hoehn only scored four points but he had an opening layup and what proved to be the winning free throws with 15.9 seconds to play for the Pioneers (1-3).

Aaron Calixte, who had 18 points for Maine (0-4), made two free throws at 8.4 seconds left. But after Lopez missed the front end of a one-and-one at 7.6 left, the Black Bears couldn’t get off a potential winning shot.

Regulation ended in a similar fashion. Celio Araujo missed a pair of free throws for Maine with 16 seconds left and Lopez muscled to the hoop to tie the game at 59 with 6.3 to play, but the Black Bears lost the ball without getting off a final shot.
